Crystal River Elementary and Creative District look to collaborate

Sep 12, 2016

School representatives and members of local arts groups will discuss how Carbondale’s Creative District status and the school’s curriculum can be more in sync on Thursday.


The collaboration won’t begin for another year, but Koenigsknecht hopes to include a framework of project-based learning, where students learn through individual projects.


Crystal River Elementary’s principal, Matt Koenigsknecht, said the goal of this meeting is to come up with a cohesive vision for how the students might be learning.

The statewide agency, Colorado Creative Industries, said it’s explored working with schools and creative districts, but doesn’t have any formal involvement.
